You Deserve Better

“We should not give away a moment to anyone who does not deserve it.”

You Deserve Better

You think he can give you the world, even when he doesn’t call or blows you off for his friends for the fourth weekend in a row. You think when he does kind things for you, it balances out all of the other times you’ve been mistreated. You’re wrong. It’s hard to know that there is someone who can give you so much more when you’re trapped in this small box. You deserve someone who's just as in love with you as you are with him. That’s hard to see because you think the world of him right now.

The right man will make you want to be a better person. Ask yourself, "Does he make me want to be a better person?" You’re sitting, waiting for him to call, show up, take you out; you're waiting on him to be a better person for you, and you know it isn't right. You feel a pit in your stomach. You constantly worry about what he’s doing, who he’s with. The need to run. He's not the one.

You're not a second route or an option. You deserve to be someone’s first choice. You shouldn’t feel uncertainty about him or yourself. You should never have to question his dedication when he says he loves you. You deserve someone who holds true to his word. When he says he’ll be there, he's there. You have confidence in his words because they are backed up by his actions.

My ex repeatedly broke promises and didn’t prioritize me the same way I did him, and it left me with a broken heart. Do not compromise the morals you’ve had for years for someone who hasn't earned your trust. Don't crack under pressure trying to force him to be the one. Leave. Take it from someone who ignored that gut feeling. Run. He's not the one.

I hope you find happiness. I hope you don’t settle for anything less than you deserve. Have patience, because the right man will come along and you’ll know why it never worked out with anyone else.

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.
